Basketball Weight Training Workout | Athlete Workouts Episode 5

February 16, 2017

This was a workout that is designed specific for basketball players to improve the athletes ability apply a vertical force. Prior to performing this workout, the athlete should have already established a proper squatting pattern and have prerequisite levels of strength through a full squat.

This workout demonstrates a partial squat because that is what is encountered more in a basketball environment, in particular when we talk about vertical jump. A box jump is added as well for a plyometric after the lift for post activation potential. We follow this up with some tempo squats with eccentric focus and sled drags.
